The game is played with a cloth game board and 32 playing pieces in 4 colors. Each piece, a six-sided die, can represent any of six shapes that move differently.
Designer Paul Edward Nowak said he has no fondness for checkers or chess, even though that is what most gamers will feel when they first play it.
How long is the game time once the playders learn the ropes? “About 30 minutes,” said Nowak. “Depending on the group, it can even be faster to play with more players as there are more jump opportunities and pieces move faster.
The choice of materials in this game is interesting and yet made sense to the designer.
“I have a commercial heat press in my home office for making t-shirts,” he said. “(That) led me to do the cloth board and packaging. The wood has a great traditional feel, and we found wood-burning to be the most efficient way of putting the symbols on the dice.”
Both Pace and Nowak are excited to have their games sharing space in the Wishing Tree booth. Stop by and check them out.
